Snow College to Host World’s Largest One-day Leadership Conference 

EPHRAM, UTAH — Leadercast is the world’s largest one-day leadership conference, originating in Atlanta and simulcast to hundreds of locations around the world. Snow College is Utah’s only host for the event which will be held at on May 6, 2016, at the Eccles Center for the Performing Arts in Ephraim. 

The theme of this year’s conference is, “Architects of Tomorrow.” The conference will equip attendees to create their own visionary path. Key speakers – visionaries in their own fields – will inspire the more than 400 people anticipated to participate in Ephraim, and the more than 120,000 people who will attend the event live in Atlanta or at hundreds of other simulcast locations in more than 20 countries. Specially selected presenters include: 

 

For the past sixteen years, Leadercast has brought people together and equipped them to become better leaders, managers, employees, and community members. 

“Sound leadership is valuable at every level – whether in our communities, businesses, schools or families. We hope this event will help everyone, from the entrepreneurs who support our area’s economy to parents and educators who influence the leaders of tomorrow,” says Snow College’s president, Gary Carlston. 

Snow College’s Custom Fit Training program has arranged to cover 50% of the cost of admission for eligible businesses in the six-county region. Further, event organizers point out that “while only 30% of our state’s population is young people, they make up 100% of tomorrow’s leaders.” Accordingly, they are making plans to provide scholarships for a limited number of students and educators from high schools throughout the region to attend Leadercast. Additionally, anyone who wishes may apply in a drawing for free admission to the event. 

Dr. Kristal Ray an assistant professor of computer science at Snow College has been involved in Leadercast multiple times in both Atlanta and other simulcast locations. According to Ray, who has helped spearhead the college’s effort to become a host site for the event, “Leadercast is an inspirational day that offers a chance to re-charge. For one day, I focus on me—my impact, obstacles and growth opportunities and make a plan for the year ahead. It gives me a chance to see how other leaders have overcome incredible challenges to achieve what they believe is important.” 

Leadercast is open to the public. More information about the event, tickets and the drawing for free admission is available at www.Snow.edu/leadercast. Businesses interested in the Custom Fit Training partnership to reduce their cost by 50% may call (435) 893-2267.
